Seeding OfWheat Is Begun (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By BERNARD BRENNER United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) - Across the nation's wheat-growing sections this week, farmers are busy seeding the 1964 winter wheat crop. Many farm experts had been predicting the acreage would not rise far above last year's level. But these experts concede they don't yet have the answer to one important question — they don't know whether current reports about possible wheat sales to Russia will induce some farmers to expand acreage. The Weather Bureau reports, meanwhile, that planting of the 1964 winter wheat crop is in full swing. In Texas, the bureau estimates more than a third of the state's probable winter wheat acreage was seeded by last Monday. In Kansas, the leading producing state, slightly under a third of the winter wheat was planted by Monday. The Weather Bureau report added that seeding was gaining momentum in Oregon. It was making good progress in western portions of the corn belt and was under one-fifth completed in Oklahoma. Through the Gulf and south Atlantic states, the bureau reported that land preparation and seeding increased in spite of dry soils. In eastern sections of the corn belt, progress was slowed by dry soils. These Weather Bureau reports do not give any estimates of the number of acres being seeded to wheat. There will be no official government estimates of this acreage until an Agriculture Depa riment report scheduled in December. A pork industry leader says hog producers should be promoting the merits of their product, not complaining in public about recent declines in demand for pork. The statement comes from Laverne Johnson of De Kalb, 111. Johnson, a hog producer, is chairman of the Pork Committee of the National Livestock and Meat Board. His comment was issued after a recent committee meeting in Chicago. In recent years, the average consumer's use of pork had dropped and the percentage of the consumer food dollar going for pork has declined. Johnson, however, says the pork industry has a positive story to tell. And he says the positive attitude which will increase pork sales must originate in the hog and pork industry itself. The Illinois fanner says pork can match any product in variety, flavor, and nutritive value. He adds that scientific studies show that many modern pork products meet the requirements of low-fat diets. Agriculture Department trade specialists predict that exports of dairy products will rise this year for the second successive year. Exports in 1962 were up to the equivalent of nearly one billion, 400 million pounds of milk—nearly double the low level reported for 1961. Exports of non-fat dry milk in 1962 set a new all-time record of 823 million pounds. Most of the exports of dairy products are donated to needy people abroad, or sold under special cut-rate terms No Claims Allowed for Tree Loss CHICAGO (AP) — A spokesman said today the Internal Revenue Service is not allowing claims of income tax losses from home owners for trees that die of disease Interest in the subject stems from a case in the U.S. District Court in Danville, 111. A jury there on May 3 decided that loss of trees because of a disease called phloem necrosis can be deducted as a casualty. The verdict involved $2,644 for John A. Appleman, a Champaign lawyer who sued the IRS for deduction of the tree loss from his personal income tax bills for 1956, 1957 and 1958. He contended the loss of trees was the result of a natural casualty that depreciated the value of his residence. He contended that it was in the same class as deductions for damage caused by floods, tornadoes or fires. But William Lutschak, technical adviser in the Chicago office of IRS, said the agency is not allowing any claims for such losses. He said IRS Commissioner Mortimer J. Caplin has given an opinion that a householder cannot deduct tree losses because of Dutch Elm or other tree diseases. Lutschak said such a loss is not a casualty. "It's a normal hazard associated with growing trees," he said. He said he doesn't know of any suits similar to the one in Danville. He also said the IRS commissioner is not bound by any court decision except a ruling by the United States Supreme Court. Half Size Magic MONMOUTH ftoiwifttt Iirtm CerfMpoadtni 801 N. ft Si.

Divine Word Missionary Celebrates Silver Jubilee ALEXIS — Monday evening at 6 o'clock, Rev. Daniel Driscoll, S.V.D., son of the late C. W. Driscoll and Mrs. Lucy Driscoll Walters, will celebrate a solemn High Mass of Thanksgiving in St. Theresa's Church, Alexis, commemorating his silver jubilee of ordination to the priesthood. Many of the former pastors of St. Theresa's and priest friends of Father Driscoll will attend the mass and reception. An invitation is being extended to all the members of the parish and the many friends of the Jubi- iiarian and his family. Father Driscoll is the first priest ever ordained from the Alexis parish. Wishing to be a foreign missionary, he attended the preparatory seminary of the Divine Word Missionaries near Chicago, the society's junior college at Girard, Pa., the novitiate at East Troy, Wis., and took his philosophical and theological studies at the Divine Word Seminary, Techny, 111. The dignity of Rev. Daniel Driscoll, S.V.D. the priesthood was conferred upon Father Driscoll, through the Sacrament of Orders, by Archbishop O'Brien of Chicago on Aug. 14, 1938. A year of study in Rome completed His studies. Goes to New Guinea In 1944, after five years of teaching and guidance work in the New England area, the dream of youth was realized when Father Driscoll was assigned to the New Guinea mission fields. Many may remember the slogan coined by Father John Shields in the successful drive to raise funds needed for the trip to the missions—"From Alexis to Alexis." (Father was being sent to a village called "Alexishafen" in Ne\ Guinea.) Before actually going into the ndssion fields of xVew Guinea, Father Driscoll was appointed rector of the newly established Divine Word Seminary in Australia. In the five years that followed, 1948-1953. assigned to the Sepik River region, he went into deep swamps of that tropical island to bring Christianity to a people steeped in fear and super­ stition. Recalled in 1953 to establish a mission promotion and fundraising office in New England, Father Driscoll has held the office of Mission Director for that area until now. He hopes someday to return to New Guinea. Reception to Follow Rev. Edmund Blough of St. Patrick's, Seneca, will be deacon and Rev. Benedict Schlimm of Sacred Heart, Annawan, will be sub-deacon at the mass. Rev. Joseph A. Gordon of St. John's, Peoria, will preach and Rev. Eugene Gould ot Blessed Sacrament, Mcrton, will act as Master of Ceremonies. Miss Grace Skelley will be in charge of the liturgical music. A reception will be held in the church hall from 7 to 9.

Stipt. E. Lynn Hill pointed out today that local citizens vitally interested in the education of their youth and also in the future growth of this community, recall that the local unit school was organized in 1948, and is made up of approximately 150 square miles. The shape of the district is practically square with routes 116 and 67 intersecting through the length of the district. "There are now J1 school buses which transporc our young people to and from school. In 1945 there were 128 school districts in Warren County and by 1954 this number was reduced to 24. In 1962, Warren had only five school districts, of which the Roseville Unit School is one. Roseville High School now has an enrollment of 228 students in grades 9 through 12. In 1953 (10 years ago) this enrollment was 143. Fi'om present grade school enrollments it appears that the high school enrollment will remain between 220 and 235. The 1962 high school enrollment of unit school districts surrounding the Roseville Unit schools gives a picture of neighboring schools. Most of these districts have provided modern high school buildings for their young people, even though in most instances their enrollment is less. In 1962 these unit schools' enrollments were: Warren 184, Avon 184, Media 84, Stronghurst 117, Alexis 172, Yorkwood 199, Northwestern 227. The proposed high school building is the result of a five-year study by the Board of Education to determine how best to provide adequate educational facilities at the high school level. The members of the board are of unanimous agreement that a new building is the best educational solution for the high school building program. Such a building can be built with a local tax rate below any neighboring districts which have already built for the future. If the proposal on Oct. 26 is successful, plans would be to start building in the spring of 1964 with the building ready for occupancy for the fall of 1965.
